Visit the province of Albacete, Spain’s most remote region to a village rated top 10 most beautiful towns in Spain. A Moorish castle, defensive cave tunnels and a river beach stop will be explored on your private tour.
Leaving the city behind us, we will travel deep into the Valencian and Castillian countryside toward the whitewashed village of Alcala del Jucar, commonly regarded as one of Spain’s most breathtaking locales. During the bus ride we will pass by mountains, quaint towns, small forests and vineyards. Brimming with history, Alcala del Jucar is a village carved into the side of a gorge and crowned at the top by a 12th Century Moorish fortress. The ancient, cave-like homes cascade down the mountain toward the rushing river below, where a Roman bridge stretches across the water. From the hilltop fortress, you will be able to see the vast, expansive countryside, the whitewashed buildings below, the deep blue, tiled dome of the church of San Andrés, and of course the historic bullring on the opposite side of the gorge, notable because of its irregular shape and precarious location.
We usually have lunch at a great restaurant overlooking Alcala de Jucar but on this private tour, you can of course customized and you can decide where you would like to eat if not there. On the way back, you may opt to stop at a local winery, which is typical in this region.
